Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
As it is your ex who is in receipt of this benefit not you then there is no requirement for you to declare it on your tax return. She might have to declare it on hers, but that is quite a different kettle of fish and not your concern.
I do hope that I have been able to set your mind at rest on this matter.
